Teuta Durres vs Granada
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stadiumi Niko Dovana.
The Sea Boys come from the Albanian top flight – which is a competition that is ranked 38th in Europe by the UEFA. And they are pitted against one of the most impressive teams in the La Liga, the tournament that is ranked 1st.
This alone should give an idea about the difference in quality between these two teams. They might be taking on each other for the very first time, but the Nasrids regularly lock horns with some of the best teams in the world, and some of the very best players.
They are the outright favorites here. And that too in such a high-pressure game. Still can you count on them to win here is style ?
Teuta Durres vs Granada: Prediction
Diego Martinez’s men secured a ticket to this qualifying competition after overcoming challenges against the likes of Valencia, Athletic Bilbao, Getafe, Real Betis etc.
These teams could be considered to be contenders to lift the Europa League if they were in the contest, and understand that the Nasrids finished above them in the table to get here.
Last season, they had even beaten the likes of Barcelona, arguably one of the best clubs in the world – and for them, a match-up against an Albanian team might not even be that big of a deal.
However, it’s football. Martinez’s men know that any team might have a puncher’s chance in any clash, and for the reason, they would not take this lightly.
It also deserves to be mentioned that the Nasrids have lost just against Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Bilbao, this whole year on the road. And they have opened their new league campaign with an impressive win to nil against Bilbao, just the last match-day.
Moreover, they have worked so very hard to get such a chance, and we can count on the La Liga team to give their 100% on the pitch this Thursday, and progress to the next round.
